God Of Bars is an introduction to Gripz.
ManyÂ of you will recognize Gripz and his style if you frequent SpitFireHipHop.com. However, for some this may be the first time you have heard Gripz. He is not one that holds punchesÂ and shoots directly at his target. Some artists in this generation of Hip Hop are riding the wave of Trap music or “mumble rap,”Â Gripz is not one of them. Gripz takes listenersÂ on a journeyÂ with his new album.
God Of Bars host anÂ impressive arrangement of dark tracksÂ that lend to the sound that is Gripz. If I had toÂ liken his sound to (which we like to do from time to time)Â any artist, it would be Tech N9ne.
The drum-anchored â€œConversation With Godâ€Â boasts one of the albumâ€™s best hooks that touches on the beliefs of prayer and who to send them to. TheÂ sound on â€œReturn Policyâ€ is likeÂ something from the futureÂ as the newcomerÂ talks about returning the shots that are coming at him. And â€œGod Of Bars,â€ the title track is a banger that showcases the lyrical abilities of Gripz.
The sounds provided by the production are truly a comfort zone for Gripz,Â that allows him to displayÂ his rhymingÂ talents from the start of the album.
Gripz and Breana collaborate on aÂ two tracks and seem to make great musicÂ together. The first track is â€œConversation With Godâ€ which is another of my favorites on the album. The two then find themselves laying low on “Radar” where Gripz explains that he will never change his style toÂ make a hits list. The twoÂ finallyÂ connect over the Dreamlife Beats produced “Overtime.”
There are not many misses for me from Gripz on ‘God Of Bars‘. Gripz’s release of this new album results in one of the best albums I have listened to in 2018. This is a great introduction to the industry by Gripz.
